Lyrics

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤
I beg your pardonI never promised you a rose gardenAlong with the sunshineThere’s gotta be a little rain sometimeWhen you take you gotta give so live and let live or let goOh-whoa-whoa-whoaI beg your pardonI never promised you a rose garden
I could promise you things like big diamond ringsBut you don’t find roses growin’ on stalks of cloverSo you better think it overWell, if sweet-talkin’ you could make it come trueI would give you the world right now on a silver platterBut what would it matter
So smile for a while and let’s be jollyLove shouldn’t be so melancholyCome along and share the good times while we can
I beg your pardonI never promised you a rose gardenAlong with the sunshineThere’s gotta be a little rain some time
I beg your pardonI never promised you a rose garden
I could sing you a tune and promise you the moonBut if that’s what it takes to hold youI’d just as soon let you goBut there’s one thing I want you to knowYou better look before you leap, still waters run deepAnd there won’t always be someone there to pull you outAnd you know what I’m talking about
So smile for a while and let’s be jollyLove shouldn’t be so melancholyCome along and share the good times while we can
I beg your pardonI never promised you a rose gardenAlong with the sunshineThere’s gotta be a little rain sometimeI beg your pardonI never promised you a rose garden
